Shawn Stockman

A member of Boyz II Men dating back to the immensely successful group's 1991 debut, Shawn Stockman has written and produced material for contemporaries and has occasionally recorded as a solo artist, including the album Shawn (2018). The smooth-voiced Stockman started performing as a youngster with the Philadelphia Boys Choir & Chorale, and a few years later connected with his long-term Boyz II Men partners while attending the Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing Arts. After Stockman, Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Michael McCary had become established as a chart-topping, multi-platinum vocal quartet, Stockman made his solo debut on the soundtrack of Mr. Holland's Opus with "Visions of Sunset." Released as a single, the ballad reached number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1996, coincidentally during the record-breaking reign of Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day." Stockman contributed additional solo material to the Down in the Delta, Disappearing Acts, and Kingdom Come soundtracks, but the group remained his primary creative outlet, even he continued outside work with the likes of Brownstone, DJ Jazzy Jeff, cousin Anthony David, and Foo Fighters, and a lengthy tenure as a judge on the NBC reality competition The Sing-Off. In 2018, Stockman released his first solo album, Shawn, previewed with the single "Feelin Lil Som'n," written with Boyz II Men collaborator Tim Kelley. ~ Andy Kellman
